Overview

Japan is blessed with so many unique cultures. This tour provides such courses which help you to understand traditional & present Japan. I will prepare 4 different options which satisfy your needs, so. please choose 2 or more options you would like to join from these options, OptionA, B, C and D and let me know. I will arrange it to your original tour by referring to your hope and opinion.

What to Expect

Would you like to join some activities during your stay in Japan? Only visiting famous sightseeing spots is not a travel. By experiencing different culture just like Japanese do, you can get deeper understanding & intimacy to Japan. However even if you have a wish to join some Japanese activities or events, it may be hard to find the way how to participate in it. This tour offers such opportunities to foreign tourists with an easy way. Through this tour, you can have opportunities to experience the popular events among Japanese and traditional Japanese culture. I am sure that it will give you a wonderful experience and precious memories.

【Option A】This is a free factory tour of Japanese leading beer brewery. Japanese beer is definitely a most popular alcoholic beverage among Japanese and has started to gain more popularity among non-Japanese people. It has a distinct flavor and taste. Through this factory tour, we will learn various things of Japanese beer, ingredients & kinds of beer, and the process of making Japanese beer. The highlight is the beer tasting prepared the ending of this tour. We can experience drinking Japanese beer and how to say ‘Cheers’ in Japanese way! (Soft drinks are available for non-alcoholic drinkers). Participation fee is not necessary but reservation is required. . Duration of this tour: About one and half an hour. 

【Option B】 If you are an animal lover, I recommend this option. We will visit ‘Owl Cafe’, one of the newest trend and culture of Japan.
This shop offers the space which you can have a communication with owls. Owl is considered to be a lucky bird in Japan. Actually they are so cute and friendly. Taking photos with an owl on your arm, shoulder, or even head must be a great memory.
Participation fee: 1,800 yen per adult (One soft drink is included.) Duration of this tour: One hour (This shop open at 12:00) NOTE: this tour is not available on Monday, due to shop holiday.

【Option C】If you are interested in traditional Japanese culture, this is the best place to visit. SUITO is an unique shop which offers various traditional cultural experience program mainly for non-Japanese, such as kimono wearing, calligraphy, making tako-yaki (octopus grilling). Among some programs prepared by this shop, please choose your favorite one . Participation fee: 2,000-4,000 yen per person. Duration of this tour: 1-3.5 hours.
※Examples of Programs※
・Quick Kimono dress-up --- dress up experience & photo shoot with your camera. From 2,000 yen. (60 minutes)
・Takoyaki making --- making & tasting takoyaki experience. From 3,000 yen (90 minutes)
・Calligraphy on T shirt --- writing your favorite Kanji (Chinese characters) on T shirt. 3,500 yen. (60 minutes)
In order to join these programs, reservation is required. Besides them, there are some more programs. If you want to know more, please feel free to ask me.

【Option D】This option provides a good opportunity to enjoy Japanese night life and dietary custom. When it comes to Fukuoka, almost all Japanese remember Yatai, an open-air food stand. Fukuoka is a mecca of Yatai, Actually 40% of all Yatai is concentrated on Fukuoka. If you stay in Fukuoka, don’t miss this opportunity. The space of Yatai is not large actually, but it will give us another merit to spend the same space and time with local residents & enjoy local cuisines such as ramen, oden (a kind of hot pot dish), grilled chicken and so on. Of course beer is also available if you hope.
No participation fee but food & drink fee is necessary. (Depends on what you order. Average budget is between 1,000 and 2,000 yen/person) Tour time: from 0.5 hour to 1 hour on average. (Yatai opens from 6:00 p.m., so this tour is something like a night tour)

It was an enjoyable Fukuoka experience with Yoshi's professionalism, knowledge, patience, helpfulness and friendliness. Enjoyed all the interesting places he brought us to, including the beautiful gardens and sights, shopping and souvenir stores, the dining places, yatais included. Will recommend Yoshi to future Fukuoka travellers. Thank you Yoshi from our family.

“ Perfect tour! ”

Communication was effortless. Yoshiharu-San gave me the exact tour I was hoping for. He made sure we were on time and even adjusted our stops to add more detail that I desired. I will return to Kyushu with mu museum friends who have similar interests and I will share Yoshiharu-San with them.

“ Nagasaki Tour ”

Two weeks ago Yoshiharu guided myself and three friends around Nagasaki. He was very organized and prepared. He added to our tour of the Peace Park and the Atomic Museum by bringing additional materials to further explain what we were experiencing. Yoshiharu calmly guided us through some very congested places and managed to keep us all together. We all thoroughly enjoyed meeting and spending the day with Yoshiharu and believe he provided us with a wonderful and meaningful day in Nagasaki that we will never forget. Lawrence Dennis USA

“ Fukuoka Visit ”

It was delightful to spend the day with Yoshi. His command of English was very good and the pacing of the tour was also very good. He was very knowledgeable about the shrine and the temple and the garden that we went to. His choice for lunch was excellent.

“ Very friendly and descent ”

This guide has been very friendly and tried to inform me about as many things as he could. I did really enjoy talking with him and we had a nice traditional lunch together. The boat trip was very interesting as well as the museum we went. The highlight of the trip was a visit to an old Samurai house. Due to his calm attitude and his engagement I would definitely recommend him again.

“ Day Trip to Itoshima and Fukuoka for a multi-generational family ”

Yoshi-san was a very nice guide who kindly helped us book a van for our family of 8 to go on a tour around Fukuoka. Yoshi-san was able to adapt to our multi-generational family with ages ranging from 7 to 70's, and he accommodated our request to fit in a trip to Itoshima, where we had lunch with a nice view of the seaside and shopped at the bakery. We also went to Kushida Shrine and Tōchō-ji Temple-- the trip through "Hell" was interesting! Because of the rainy weather and the unusually heavy traffic that day we were not able to go to Yosentei Park. But all in all, we enjoyed the tour. Yoshi-san also gave us recommendations for our next stop in Japan (Osaka).
